Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the Baltimore Ravens have completed the 2023 NFL Draft it is a good time to look at how these new draft picks may fit into the roster. Which players are locks to make the team, and which ones will be on the roster bubble? Also, who do the picks impact?

Baltimore Ravens 53-man roster projection

Quarterback (2): Lamar Jackson, Tyler Huntley

The quarterback room is obvious now. Anthony Brown can and will make it to the practice squad.

Running back (4): JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, Patrick Ricard

The question here is whether UDFA Keaton Mitchell can either top Justice Hill, or make it so that another running back has to make the team. For now, we see him on the practice squad.

Wide receiver (6): Odell Beckham, Rashod Bateman, Zay Flowers, Nelson Agholor, Devin Duvernay, Tylan Wallace

The big question at wide receiver will probably come down to Tylan Wallace against James Proche. Both bring special teams ability, but Wallace may be the better wide receiver.

Offensive Line (9): Ronnie Stanley, Ben Cleveland, Tyler Linderbaum, Kevin Zeitler, Morgan Moses, Daniel Faalele, John Simpson, Patrick Mekari, Sala Aumavae-Laulu

The starting five is locked in, and we should feel good about Faalele making it again, as well as Patrick Mekari. Simpson has an inside track, especially with Andrew Vorhees expected to miss the season. This also keeps a spot open for Sala Aumavae-Laulu

Tight End (3): Mark Andrews, Isaiah Likely, Charlie Kolar

This is set in stone, and would take a UDFA breakout to change anything now.

Defensive Line (5): Justin Madibuke, Michael Pierce, Broderick Washington, Brent Urban, Travis Jones

The Baltimore Ravens added some intriguing names amongst UDFAs, but this is the main group.

Edge Rusher (5): Odafe Oweh, David Ojabo, Tyus Bowser, Daelin Hayes, Tavius Robinson

Tavius Robinson joins the group and may push out Jeremiah Moon. Daelin Hayes allows them to feel good about the interior depth.

Linebacker (6): Roquan Smith, Patrick Queen, Trenton Simpson, Malik Harrison, Kristian Welch, DelShawn Phillips

With Trenton Simpson, they could move on from Patrick Queen and find depth in another spot. Welch and Phillips are special teams staples, making this a strong group from top to bottom.

Cornerback (6): Marlon Humphrey, Brandon Stephens, Pepe Williams, Kyu Blu Kelly, Jayln Armour-Davis, Trayvon Mullen

The Baltimore Ravens waiting this long to take a cornerback fuels speculation that Marcus Peters will be back sooner than later.

Safety (4): Kyle Hamtilon, Marcus Williams, Ardarius Washington, Geno Stone

The team really has little depth to speak of here.

Specialists (3): Justin Tucker, Jordan Stout, Nick Moore
